Ok, here I go so far.
Stuff I'm thinking about the birth:
No one touches me unless I ask them to
Be in living room
Have a fire if it's cold.
Time alone with Adam
Ice to chew on
Counter pressure on my back
Music for early labor, games, funny stuff early, in-between contractions
Party afterwards if I feel up to it, otherwise SLEEP
Adam and I get to hold the baby first (I didn't get to hold ds for about a half hour, even though he was fine
What if the baby needs resuscitation?
What kinda stuff do you do after the birth?
When do you transport?
What happens if I go to the hospital?
How do I pay you?
How on earth do I afford you?
How many births have you attended?
Under what circumstances have you had to transport?
What do you bring to the birth?
Are there herbs etc. I should use now in anticipation of conception?
How far overdue will you let a mama go?
Isn't my house too dirty?
What if I freak out and want to go to the hospital?
What should I do to control my blood sugar?
Have you attended lots of other ummm, overweight moms with GD?
Should I see the evil (s)OB's at Kaiser in case I have to transport?
What about waterbirth? I don't know anything about it since the birth center I went with before wouldn't allow it.
What are vaginal exams for?
Do I have to have them? When?
How often will I see you for prenantal care?
Hmm, I'm on a roll now!
|Just like to add, I wish Pam could be my midwife too!|
Yeah, I feel a little like royalty
